:40 in the afternoon. susan rice remains the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. and a high-profile one at that. she's known for being very close to president obama, a long-time friend and ally for the president. she's also known for being blunt. and for being aggressively intelligent. she is a rhodes scholar. she's stanford educated. she was on the national security council staff and served as assistant secretary of state in the clinton administration. she was unanimously confirmed in 2009 for the post she holds now as the u.n. ambassador. when hillary clinton made clearer than clear that she would not stay on for a second term as secretary of state, susan rice's name was floated basically immediately as a potential nominee for that job. hers was not the only name floated for that job, but her potential nomination was given new prominence and new political heat when republican senators, led by john mcguess who decided that the political traction they could not get before the election in attacking the president for the benghazi attack, they would try to get instead after the election by attacking su
to continue to be an outstanding u.s. ambassador to the united nations. i hadn't made a decision about who would be my next secretary of state. there's no doubt that susan was qualified. there are other people who are qualified as well. her interest is in serving me but most importantly serving the country. and she's done an outstanding job. i could not be prouder with her. she will continue to be one of the top members of my national security team. >> we talked about the next choice. it's interesting to watch the dominos fall. a lot of people saying john kerry now is the choice. all these same senate republicans who were challenging susan rice said john kerry will breeze through. it will be an easy confirmation. then that opens up a senate seat in massachusetts. could scott brown come back? this opens up a whole new series of conversations. >> to andrea's last point, you kind of wonder if it's only six weeks after a very, very resounding win in the election and obama was not pounding his fist standing strong, you wonder what the next four years will be. >> he was angry. >> he could wen a
growing criticism over the last several weeks because of the way that she portrayed the u.s. consulate in benghazi. she blamed an angry mob, not a terrorist attack by al qaeda. rice has said that she was working off of information she had at the time, but republicans largely led by senator john mccain have accused her of misleading the american people and said because of that, they wouldn't support her nomination. it was that pushback that led her to give a letter to the president saying that she did not wish to be considered. she said she believed the confirmation process would be long, lengthy and disruptive and just not worth it to the country at this time. president obama did accept that decision, and then said that he regretted it but also said that it spoke to her character. she will likely continue to work close w closely with the president, either as his u.n. ambassador or as his security adviser. he will likely now nominate senator john kerry. larry? >> many thanks. on top of the susan rice story, we are also learning tonight that retired nebraska republican senator chuck hage
there was one shooter. the person who was detyned near the shooting scene was a man described as wearing b.d.u.s, khaki fatigues and working near the woods. i had a number of people tell me we don't think he's a player in this. that said, now the associated press says they're talking to the shooter's younger brother as john made the point this might just be due diligence by investigators to obviously want to talk to available family members and friends and close associates. so we can't say one way or the other and i think we need to be careful about not getting out too far too fast. because as we've learned in the past these big stories are kind of malleable, the facts, and they tend to change. on the guns, we have a law enforcement official, norah, telling us that with the shooter's body inside the school the police have recovered two handguns. one is a sig sauer, as john mentioned, that's the service revolver the secret service carries and the other is a 9 millimeter, the weapon of choice for many place departments. both are efficient weapons. kind of high quality weapons. and would have allow
administration last spring. the national counterterrorism center can now collect information about any u.s. citizen, without any reason or cause in the name of counterterrorism. we're learning about this, more about this now because julie andwin of the "wall street journal" did a freedom of information request to find out was there even a debate most the administration about whether or not it would be allowed to take any government file, so anytime you have the government if your life, now that file could go to national counterterrorism center, for any reason. are you comfortable with that? >> greg: well, i like, i mean, i happen to enjoy surveillance but for reasons i can't get in to here. giving eric holder access is giving car keys to a kindergarten glass. why do i feel like she will be the ground game in 2016? we have imprisoned a filmmaker, expanded surveillance over america and used drones to kill americans. we painted the right being those who infringe on right. but evil is done in name of america. >> eric: al-awlaki became a u.s. citizen -- >> i'm okay with it. he's a terrorist. it
